These patterns for creating personal Web sites have been distilled over the last few years from the most interesting personal Web sites I've found. For more information on these patterns, please read the introduction.
These patterns were last revised in July of 2003. For a summary of changes, see the revision history.
The patterns are grouped by subject:
Content patterns focus on what your site contains.
Structural patterns describe three levels of organization: the site, individual pages, and links.
Temporal patterns guide how your site changes over time.
Navigation patterns provide guidelines for designing site navigation.
Use technology patterns to make your site more useful, not less.
